TechWorld Medicals product best in show at ECRM Cough & Cold and Allergy conference
DALLAS TechWorld Medicals was awarded “Best New Product” Wednesday evening at the ECRM Cough & Cold and Allergy conference held here for its NasalCare nasal rinse starter kit.
NasalCare is a nasal-sinus irrigation system with a patented anti-backflow technology that’s been granted 510(k) approval by the Food and Drug Administration. According to the company, the anti-backflow technology helps prevent contamination and is easier to clean after use. A protective cap prevents bacteria and debris from entering the NasalCare reservoir when not in use.
As opposed to some more traditional nasal irrigation systems, NasalCare also features a positive pressure flow so that patients don’t have to tip their heads when using, noted Lilly Zhang, president of TechWorld Medicals.
The patented nasal rinse mix included with the product contains sea salts, aloe vera and citric acid/sodium citrate as a pH balancer.
Suggested retail price is $14.99 for both the adult size and pediatric version.
Sponsored by Drug Store News, the “Best New Product” honor is selected by retail buyers in attendance.
